14.05.-21.05.2022 - Ecological week (*booked out)

*booked out

In spring 1990 we had, together with Italian friends, a so called “Ecological Weekend” for the first time. We had almost finished the renovation of our buildings in San Martino. Andrea and two lonely sheep were trying to clean the wilderness around the village. We invited friends to a working-feast and they helped us in the “battle against the wilderness”. The situation was pleasurable and the result was more than satisfying. This was the birth of the “Ecological Week”.
For several years volunteers met at San Martino in May to clean old trails and to create and mark new ones. Parts of the trail that is today known as the “Percorsi Occitani” were cleaned.
Even after Andrea’s death a group of volunteers who meanwhile had become friends continued their work for many years and thus made a valuable contribution to the conservation of the Maira Valley’s trail network. Due to diverse private reasons this group of friends of the Centro Culturale and the Maira Valley has finished its work. We thank this group very much. That was the history of the “Ecological Week”.
This year we will meet on 14th May in San Martino to start our “Ecological Week”. The group will stay the whole week at the Centro Culturale in San Martino. You will be accommodated in the dormitory (Posto Tappa). Single and doublerooms are available for a supplement.

We expect to be on the trails for 4 to 7 hours daily. The cost should be cost price and is €40 per night including full board in the dormitory.

21.05. - 27.05.2022 - Yoga and Mountain Hiking with Barbara Rau and Toni Abbattista

Pure relaxation and enjoyment await us in an extraordinary natural and cultural landscape in the Maira Valley. Only two hours from Turin, the Centro Culturale Borgata San Martino is located at 1400m above sea level. Maria Schneider’s retreat with its lovingly restored old farmhouses is the quiet oasis for our yoga retreat and also the starting point for hikes in the surrounding mountains.

The aim of the resource-strengthening week is to promote relaxation, reduce stress and strengthen resilience through yoga and mountain hiking. The holistic concept of our programme combines dynamic and meditative yoga with health-promoting mountain hikes. The culinary highlight is the five-course menu with which Maria Schneider’s team spoils us every evening.

11.06. - 18.06.2022 "Accompanied time out" in the Maira Valley with Jörg Mangold

Accompanied time-out in the Maira Valley
A time-out far from everyday life in the mountains of Piedmont.

“Connected to the earth, close to the sky!” – is the motto of the Centro Culturale Borgata San Martino. This is also how the fantastic 5-course menu tastes in the evening – Occitan earthy and heavenly!

I can’t think of a better place to take time out for a week in the sense of mindfulness, self-compassion and cultivating the positive for inner clarification processes, dealing with old patterns or current crises.

Accompanied means that every day there is the possibility to book one or more sessions with me for a mindfulness-based life coaching or therapeutic conversation. This is about concerns, not diagnoses. Nevertheless, if needed, I can also offer a focused intensive short therapy during this week. In the mornings, participation in a common guided meditation is offered. Otherwise there is plenty of time for walking to allow the issues to be worked through inwardly. In the evening there will be a pleasurable rounding off.

18.06. - 25.06.2022 - Feldenkrais in the Maira Valley with Jutta Numberger and Ingrid Etter

We are happy to offer Feldenkrais in this place where the art of conscious awareness is appreciated.

“I believe that knowing oneself is the most important thing a person can achieve for themselves. How can one get to know oneself? By learning not to behave as one should, but to behave as one does. In doing so, we have great difficulty in distinguishing what we do because we should and what we actually do as ourselves.” Moshé Feldenkrais

With his lessons on conscious awareness, Moshé Feldenkrais has left us with a wonderful foundation for learning to discriminate and create choice.

The Centro Culturale in Borgata San Martino offers an environment where it is easy to engage with yourself. Beauty wherever the eye looks, sumptuous meals and the absence of everyday constraints make the week here a nourishing experience on many levels.
